The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth. Psalm 145:18 

 I am sure that you have heard the quote which goes something like, “God is only a prayer away.” Verses like Psalm 145:18 remind me that this is true: our Savior is as close as when we whisper a prayer. What a comfort to know that when we sincerely call out to God, He is there for us, listening to our cry, ready to help. 

How has your verse brought comfort to you? Encouragement? Take a moment and share them with us!!!!

The LORD is righteous in all His ways, and holy in all His works.
Psalm 145:17

This verse makes me stop and think. God is righteous in ALL (not “some”) of His ways and holy in ALL (not “some”) of His works! God does nothing by accident. He does nothing that is unrighteous or unholy. This is an amazing concept to ponder. When things “go wrong” or situations seem like they cannot get worse, God is there at work – and He is working in righteousness and holiness.

Ten Weeks to Go . . .

Thank you girls for "hangin' in there" as we've traveled along memorizing 52 verses this year! There are only TEN weeks/verses left!!!! Isn't it amazing how God has used your verses in your life this year?

If this challenge has been a blessing to you, I would like to encourage you to invite two other people to participate in 2013. Begin now by blogging about it and sharing it with your friends. Memorizing 52 verses seems like an immense task to some people who have never committed much of God's Word to memory, but it is an abundant blessing. Please encourage others to join us in this challenge next year.

Thou openest Thine hand and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
Psalm 145:16

How my verse spoke to me:
     This verse "came up" about a year or two ago. The Lord was showing me how He is the only One Who can fulfill me and the only One Who can satisfy me. Many girls try to find this fulfillment and satisfaction in a boyfriend, husband, best friend, job, mission-work, blogging, face-booking, you name it. But the truth is : satisfaction (and fulfillment) comes only by God's hand! He is the ONLY ONE who can truly satisfy.

How did your verse speak to you?
Take a minute or two and share your verse plus how it specially applies to you.

The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.
Psalm 145:15

Challenge for this week:
     ~Spend at least five minutes meditating (thinking about, processing) your verse
     ~What are some truths that God has shown you through your verse?

As I memorized and meditated on Psalm 145:15, the truth that stuck out to me was how God provides what we need in due season – not on our time-table, but on His. That is why it is vital to wait on Him. If we grow impatient and take things into our own hands, we might miss out on God’s best – which is coming in due time!

If ye love Me, keep My commandments.
John 14:15

Such a short, simple verse, and yet so powerful! Our love for Jesus is shown in how we keep His commandments. If I say, “I love Jesus,” and yet I turn around and steal, what kind of testimony is that? If I say, “I love Jesus,” but am impatient with and shun my siblings, will others believe what I say?

Our attitude towards keeping God’s commands should not be “just because I have to,” but “because I love Him!”

What is our verse this week?
Make it a point to review all of your verses this week!

Only twelve weeks to go!!
